We have recently started to work with an interesting additional data-source for Wikipedia data: the number of views per hour a specific Wikipedia page receives. This data is available at this website http://dumps.wikimedia.org/other/pagecounts-raw/ and contains view data since 2008.
Below we present three examples of the temporal evolution in the interest a specific Wikipedia article generates. Until now we have extracted and processed view data from 2008 till March 2010, more data is being currently downloaded.
Interesting applications of this type of data might be the combination with the number of edits or comments per time unit, or adding the view count as additional parameter to the network visualizations (generating snapshots for views in different time windows).
